I finally got to drive the pig today! Had it up to 60mph and it handled fine. It was nice to actually take it down the road after paying for it to sit for a month, haha. The 454 was LOUD with just headers, and a 3 ft. length of tubing though. I picked up some mufflers today though so I should be good to go.

Haha, the 35" boggers were just for a couple pictures. They dont have a heavy enough load rating to be beneficial. They DID look bad *** on the truck though.

I know it has been a while, but the tow rig is ocming along slowly! It has recently gotten a new carburetor, front brake calipers + rubber lines, air filter, cap + rotor, vacuume advance, oil change, tranny fluid change, rear tires, an interior cleaning (quick), a fresh wash, and I also re-wired the trailer harness.

Here are some updated pictures.

A couple more updates, haha.
I had it loaded up to tow the Jeep to a club ride and it blew a radiator hose. It was a quick fix, but it made me question some of the other hoses and connections so I decided not to chance it and I missed the ride. Rausch Creek in May though and I don't plan on missing it!!!!!
